In this powerful collection, Janice Galloway takes on David Lodge's assertion that 'literature is mostly about having sex and not much about having children; life's the other way round'. Her multi-layered stories not only explore sex and sexuality, but parenthood, relationships, the connections between generations, death, ambition and loss. Here are sixteen razor-sharp tales about the raw and poignant stuff of life, from one of Scotland's best loved and most acclaimed authors.
